We Are A.R.M.Y. Strong!!

Each day, we say the Continental Creed: "As a member of the Continental Army, I promise to be Accountable, Respectful, Motivated to Learn, and do mY best." We also remind students of our school goal of achieving a letter grade of a B in three years or less....Students will hear us say "Are you helping us get to a B in 3?" If we all focus on being ARMY Strong every day, we will reach this goal!

ISTEP+ Part 2 this week

Students will take the second round of ISTEP+ this week. We will test the first two hours of school every day this week. Students have seven sessions to complete. This portion of the ISTEP+ will count for 70% of their total ISTEP+ score. It is important that your student is at school each day, rested and ready to do their best. The scores on ISTEP+ are used to place students in classes, determine placement in programs, and is a large part of our school goal. We talked to all of the students on Friday to remind them of our goal of a school letter grade of a B in three years or less. This is where we all step up to the plate, so we can show what students at Washington Middle School really can do. Let's do this, Continentals!

8th grade package fee

8th grade students can bring $20 to their first period teacher at any time before May 1st. This package includes the student-designed t-shirt, the Promotion portfolio with certificate and picture, and the student-planned Block Party. We look forward to celebrating our accomplishments and friendships on the last day of school.
